    Hi guys, I finally got my 125 running on my ct70. Fired right up actually with very minimal effort. Anyways, I bought the engine kit from PCC motors off ebay. It is advertized coming with a 22mm "racing carb" They dont tell you what make or model the carb is. Would anyone know off hand?

    I hear that these run lean out of the box, so I wanna make sure that before I start riding it, the carb is squared away. All Ive done was start it, idle it for 2 mins and shut her down. Idled very smooth.

    Ill take a picture of the carb when I get a chance, maybe you guys can help me identify...

    Did you ever find out what carb you have? I believe I have the same as you and would like to rejet it.

    Where are you? What's average ambient temperature? I'm in Southern California, decent weather between 55 to 80+ degrees F.

    PCC is located in Southern California aswell, Since then I've purchased a L125 from them aswell, and has been running great for over a year now of almost every chance of a decent day of riding and some 50+ mile scooter rides with groups.

    When I received my L140 as a kit/combo, it came with a 'mikuni' carb. Used it for the 125 and did basic tuning and is working great.

    If you have a Mikuni,it comes with a 15 pilot and a 95 main.Way too small for a 125/140 and should be changed to around a 27-105 combo,at least that's what works for my altitude and temps.I'm pretty sure where ever you live a 15 pilot 95 main will be the future death of your Lifan.

    I've seen many 125's with Keihin PZ22 clones. There are many makes of that model, YSN, Sheng Wey, etc.

    The main jets are 4 mm thread, the pilot jets may not fit from the original Keihin, they have the thread at the bottom instead of the middle. I haven't found replacements for the copy model, you can use a jet bore kit and a jet measuring gauge.

    Edit: Oops, didn't see the date :)
